Portugal secured three points in their opener against Hungary putting them in a good position to qualify for the knockouts. Raphael Guerreiro scored in the 85th minute before Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice to seal a 3-0 win. The defending champions will head into the game knowing that a win would book their spot in the last-16 stage and Fernando Santos will hope to avoid setbacks in their title defence. Portugal have been one of the top teams in the Euros, reaching the semi-finals in 1984, 2000, 2012 and most recently 2016.
Germany will enter this game off the back of a 1-0 defeat to France on Tuesday, with an own goal from Mats Hummels deciding the contest in Munich.
